Every aspect of the Wheeler experience is designed to foster a lifelong love of learning in our young people, and to foster their growth, curiosity, creativity, and empathy.
From the moment you set foot on our urban campus or at the Farm, you can feel the energy: a crackling, buzzing dynamic that transcends age, grade, role, or area of study. Our entire community is eager, invested, and joyful, and we love to learn about one another, and the world around us.
At Wheeler, we invite you to become “hyphenated”: a microbiologist-singer-soccer player, a creative writer-programmer-sculptor, or a historian-dancer-chef. You’re never relegated to one box; the more curiosity you possess, the more opportunities you’ll have to pursue.
From their first days here, our youngest students are shepherded by older “buddies” who show them the ropes… and year after year, they grow into the role models for the next generation.
We embrace different backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives, and celebrate both our differences and our commonalities. Everyone is welcome here, and we bring that same sense of compassion and kindness to the service projects we take on in the communities around us.
Come explore what’s possible with an open heart and an open mind.
